Faithbrooke Vineyard Wedding | Ariel & Evan

December 30, 2018

Ariel and Evan’s Luray, VA Wedding at Faithbrooke Vineyards was the PERFECT end to my 2018 wedding season! I had an amazing time celebrating with their friends and family all day. It doesn’t seem like too long ago we took their engagement photos (but it was all the way back in July)! If you missed their engagement session, you can check it out here!

Their beautiful December wedding had a surprising temperature of 50 degrees and gorgeous weather — essentially the perfect weather for the perfect couple. The area around Faithbrooke was absolutely enchanting, and I can’t wait to return there for future weddings!

Before their ceremony, Evan and Ariel had written letters to each other. As they read them behind a door, I couldn’t help but think of how excited they must be to get married after spending 6 years together through some of life’s big changes; high school, college, and finding adult jobs. These two are just meant to be together and I am honored to have been the one that captures their love story.

Apart from walking into their reception with “The Office” theme song and having the best bubble exit, their night was complete with their amazing wedding party and parents that helped make this day possible. I heard one of the greatest best-man speeches, a tearful maid of honor speech, and witnessed parent dances that made my heart melt. The DJ (Jean Mathurine) kept the party going all night long and had (almost) everyone up and on their feet! Honestly I believe all guests (including myself) had an amazing time.



Ariel and Evan,

Thank you so much for asking me to capture one of the most important days of your lives. I am honestly blown away by how amazing of a couple you are and am sure that God has so many things planned for your marriage as a couple. I couldn’t be more grateful for your parents, vendors, bridal party, and guests, for making 2018 wedding season the one to beat! I am overjoyed from your wedding and cannot wait to show you your finished gallery, but until then, enjoy some of my favorites for your sneak peek! 🙂

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

"Her excitement about being our photographer was contagious."

From the first meeting, we knew Andrea was an experienced photographer who was also warm and bubbly, which is the perfect type of person to have around you on your wedding day. She was extremely helpful with answering any questions we had, and was very responsive. Andrea is incredibly organized and efficient.

Working with her was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend her!
